House of Glory

House of Glory

House of Glory is a shelter for teenage girls and their babies who have been victims of domestic violence resulting in pregnancy. Girls come into our home as young as 13 years of age, pregnant from rape or incest, and suffering family breakdown in a culture of poverty, drug abuse and crime.

These girls are given a loving home and help with important prenatal care. As they make decisions about whether to keep their babies or give them up for adoption, we offer support and encouragement. We also provide post-natal care as well as training in parenting skills for those girls who decide to keep their babies. Some of the girls stay with us until they can be safely reunited with their family, and others remain here until they turn 18.

Since June of 2009, we have had the privilege of sheltering 37 teen moms and caring for 28 infants. We have intentionally kept the number of girls and babies in the home to a maximum of 12, which better enables the staff to work personally with each girl.

While in the home, the girls continue their education either through home schooling or attendance at the local public school. They also receive vocational training through formal classes at a barber school or cooking school, as well as informal classes taught in the home by volunteers. Our goal is to provide them with a practical skill to generate income once they leave the home.

As we care for their physical and emotional needs, we realize that the most important thing we can offer these girls and their babies is the good news of the Gospel, helping them understand how much Jesus loves them. We rejoice that most of the girls receive Christ as their Savior and become, with their children, baptized, functioning, and growing members of the local church.
